When people think of disaster recovery, they immediately conjure up images of hurricanes, tornadoes and floods. While Mother Nature has done billions upon billions of dollars’ worth of damage to businesses across the country, companies need to also protect themselves against man-made disasters that strike every single day. Things like fires, electric surges and even hackers can corrupt and destroy a company’s vital data, crippling them for days and even weeks. The importance of being proactive rather than reactive is vital in today’s business climate.
Despite the growing popularity of cloud hosted ERP, the vast majority of businesses are still utilizing on premise servers to house their ERP solution. There are a number of perfectly valid reasons to remain in an on premise solution, but this does leave your data more vulnerable to catastrophe.
Our disaster recovery program creates a replica of your
server infrastructure and then takes a snapshot of your system data and stores
it in a secure cloud environment. Your
system stays dormant in our secure data center until you need it. In the event of a disaster, we can have you
up and running with the most recent copy of your system, minimizing data loss
and helping you get your day to day functions back online and productive in a
quick time frame.
We provide our clients with a Recovery Objective Time (ROT) of 4 hours. That means that if your systems go down for whatever reason, our disaster recovery system will have up to 6 designated users back up and running in the cloud within 4 hours. In the event of an extended outage of your on premise system, we can add additional users as needed.
The great John Wooden used to tell his player that
failure to prepare is preparing to fail.
Having a backup system in place is great, but knowing what do to the
moment a disaster strikes is important to a successful disaster recover
solution. We will put your company
through a twice annual “fire drill”. We
will simulate your disaster recovery protocol so you can test the speed with
which your systems are restored, measure data loss (if there is any) and test
how your system functions in a cloud based environment.
